Deadline and Flashparty are still underway, and while waiting, lets chillax (=chill and relax) and just enjoy the music. Not much speech, but still some news:
On the show:
– Deadline and Flash party are soon over and next week we’ll have the music.
– Will the ericade.radio-music become a hit among cyberpunks?
– We sound even better now. (Not me, come on, the music!)
– A better website is coming.
Here is the story of the station. And to sum it up: “…you cannot learn faster than when you had the listener logs updating in front of you. When that well-thought-out diatribe against that pesky computer called an “Atari” hit the air, and I saw people disconnecting. That was an immediate “Ouch, dammit”-moment right there.”. Now you know. Or, you can read the whole article and get a good laugh out of it all. It sure has been a crazy ride.
We’re currently uploading remasterings of all our older tunes. This has to be done because we were notified that some songs were not playing correctly. All Impulsetracker-tunes have been put back into the station and the Fasttracker-tunes are slowly coming back. There may be tracks now that cuts of abruptly until I’ve had the time […]
We’re back with three new demo party toplists. It’s from Nordlicht, Xenium and Function 2022. It’s a bit of a catchup of all the important demo parties with tracked music we missed during the last 30 days.
DJ Daemon blasts through them at a brisk tempo and skips some of the less interesting entries to give you the highlights. Not a boring moment.
Two years on the air! They said it wasn’t possible – it couldn’t be done. And I proved them… Actually, no one said any of that. But the station is on and broadcasting 24/7. It’s been quite a year and let me, DJ Daemon tell you about all the stuff we’ve been through together.
One hour of the newest additions to the station of tracked music.
I’m proud to call this a radio station, which may weird, when everyone else thinks of streaming music as little more than a playlist generator. This is not wrong, but it is missing why a true radio station is so much more than Spotify’s radio feature or a YouTube-channel promising “Synthwave, chipwave, retrowave … something, something the dark side”.
Ahem… IT’S CALLED TRACKED MUSIC!!!
Oh, anyway. What makes ericade.radio a radio station, is exactly what makes any radio station just that.
Every week, ModArchive.org spotlight a bunch of noteworthy modules and DJ Daemon has selected some of those as the highlights of the spotlights so to speak. You will get some really cool songs by artists seldom heard on the station like DJ Ail and Thwy.
Autumn is here and the leaves are falling of the trees. So, time to slow down and enjoy some good musical styles from the 90s truth the trackers running on Amigas, Ataris and PC. DJ Daemon is the voice in the night, leading you through upbeat tunes and melodious niceness.
So enjoy an hour of great tracked music and your favourite beverage.
Svenska Commodoreklubben (SCK) held a great retro-event in Täby in northern Stockholm in Sweden between the 26 – 28th of August 2022. It held a fantastic museum, a repair shop, a quiz held by Frida Katarina, the online meeting “Sen kväll med Commodoreklubben” and ericade.radio did a live broadcast.
Huge thanks to Hravnkel, Björn A, Bjonte, PataG, Hedgewizard, Per G, Frida Katarina and all the other people making the retro-scene the place to be!
We did a live broadcast during the most of the Friday, but had to cut it short on Saturday due health-issues on my part. But still, we got a lot of stuff to talk about. And the music is a fresh addition to the station and mostly very soft and mellow as it feels right. Enjoy!
What a computer! The legendary C64. In August of 2022, it celebrates 40 years of being the one computer we all remember fondly. That’s right, Commodore launched it in August of 1982. The same year as the war in the Falklands and Michael Jackson’s thriller.
DJ Daemon talks about the C64. The music is mostly fantastic remakes of old C64 game tunes.
